Over the period of seven hard working days I created an outdoor
public commission inside a tunnel for Slagelse Council, DK located in
Skælskør.
Total length: 27 meter on each side.

It was official opened on August 30, 2019 by the mayor John Dyrby
followed by a poetic reading by me during the music of Gypsy Of God.

It was all quite overwhelming.

Namely because of the locals being such a big part of the proces as
they every day came to talk about glasses, God and everything in
between.

I started to use their many stories in the motifs, focusing on the
nature they kept on showing me by pointing towards the lake the
tunnel is placed next to, or showing me their roses in their garden (I
actually went there to see them) or by giving me photos they had
captured of the wildlife.

In the center of the tunnel I painted the words:

I Am Trying Not To Be Here
